Leif manages and funds Income Share Agreements for schools.Learn More
Trying to manage Student ISAs in-house is difficult. Verifying identity, running credit evaluations, checking income, and collecting payments are non-trivial tasks. With Leif, schools can focus on their core-competency of teaching and let Leif worry about the rest.
While the yields to ISAs can be high, schools need access to capital to grow. Leif funds ISAs that meet our investment criteria. For ISAs that do not meet our investment criteria Leif enables schools to sell to outside investors. Whether ISAs are funded by Leif or outside investors, the Leif platform facilitates seamless management and tracking of financial data.

As of 2017 the cumulative debt burden of student loans is over 1.4 trillion dollars. The cost of traditional 4-year higher education has become nearly prohibitively expensive for all but the wealthiest or those most willing to take on burdensome private and federal student loans. This does not have to be. For the school that offers the skills training that leads to the most in-demand and highest paying jobs in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S.T.E.M.) fields, and who believe that an education should not have to be financed with decades of debt, Leif will be a partner in the realignment of educational cost with value.
"It comes out of my salary...I don’t even notice it. You don’t have to pay anything unless you are earning a certain amount of money, and I think that benchmark is fair as well."
